Phoenix, Arizona provides a beautiful backdrop for the Phoenix Coyotes NHL franchise that has really developed into a quality organization in recent years.  The Coyotes play their home games at Arena, and they have one of the best arenas in the National Hockey League to entertain their fans and play some excellent professional hockey. If you find yourself in the Phoenix area, be sure to make Arena one of the stops that you make along the way. Watching a Phoenix Coyotes game can be very exciting, and it goes without saying that some of the best athletes in the world are showcasing their talents only a few feet away from you.

The building itself is located in the heart of northern Phoenix, which is an incredibly scenic part of town. While you're admiring your surroundings, you will want to make sure not to miss Loop 101, which is the main highway that will basically put you in the parking lot of Arena.  The first thing you'll notice as you're drving into the sports comples is University of Phoenix Stadium, where the Arizona Cardinals play, as both facilities share the same parking areas.  If you were planning to take public transportation to the arena to watch the Phoenix Coyotes, you'll have to consider driving your car instead because there are very few bus routes that put you anywhere near the arena. The good news is that they have plenty of on-site parking, so you won't have a long walks to and from your car to get to Arena.

A public plaza is there to greet fans as they make their way to the main entrance of the building. This area provides a great opportunity to mingle with Coyotes fans who are about to enjoy an exciting game of hockey. There's an oversized video board for commercials and announcements that's clearly visible as you make your way to the main entrance as well.  The nice thing about Pro Hockey in the desert is that even if you're momentarily waiting outside, you won't have to worry about wearing the multiple layers of clothing necessary to keep warm up north.  The city of Phoenix experiences some of the mildest weather in the country during the winter hockey months.

The concourse inside the arena is a testament to a world-class hockey organization that has been building in the city Phoenix, and it provides all of the amenities and frills that befit a hockey team such as the Phoenix Coyotes and their fans. Different varieties of food are made available through the concession stands that are located throughout Arena. Whether it is pizza, burgers, or hot dogs that are sought, it is very easy to find all of that terrific ballpark food that fans all over America love to indulge in.

Some of the best steaks in the United States can be found only a few steps away from Arena at Saddle Ranch Chop House. Preparing beef according to their patrons wishes, Saddle Ranch Chop House gives Phoenix visitors the perfect opportunity to sample some of the best Southwestern cuisine that can be found in this region of the country. You might also want to explore Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville if you are looking for that adult beverage of choice along with some good American food to accompany it. Margaritaville is filled with Jimmy Buffett memorobilia, so fans of the popular musician can celebrate the life and career of a truly innovative singer/songwriter.

PHX Nightclub in downtown Phoenix is the perfect place to stop after the game to get in some dancing and drinking. A great bar with a live DJ who spins the most popular songs of today is waiting for patrons looking for a night on the town. They have drink specials according to the day of the week, and sports fans can usually find an athlete or two from one of the local sports teams that is willing to party and have a good time right along with party goers. Hurricane Bay is another night hotspot that can't be missed when frequenting the Phoenix area. This is another location that features a live DJ and some excellent drink specials. Hurricane Bay is the perfect opportunity to mingle with coeds while partying till the sun comes up.

If you're planning to be in town for a couple extra days, be sure to check out the Phoenix Zoo while seeing the Phoenix Coyotes in action. In fact, a coyote is just one of the many animals that can be found at one of the larger zoos in the country. Sharks and stingrays are also aplenty in the fifteen-thousand gallon water tank that is on the grounds at the Phoenix Zoo. There is something for people of all ages, and it can be the perfect compliment for a visit to Phoenix to watch the NHL's Coyotes play. If it's shopping that you desire, look no further than Arizona Mills.
